Pigeon Hill Brewing – Barrel Aged Grapefruit Renny Double IPA

Pigeon Hill Brewing in Muskegon has really been batting 1.000 in my book, as everything from them that I’ve had so far has been fantastic. Today I’m going to look at their Barrel Aged Grapefruit Renny double IPA, and I’m going to try it next to the regular everyday Grapefruit Renny DIPA to see what the differences are between them. Both of them are 9.4% so they’re sure to pack a punch.

My BBA Huma Lupa Licious Review is here:

Old Nation – Full Earth – Boss Tweed pt. 2?

Full Earth from Old Nation Brewing is their newest Double NE IPA, and I would think a direct competitor to their original DNEIPA, Boss Tweed.  I think it was only a few weeks from time I’d heard this was being released to it hitting shelves, and I was wondering how it would set itself apart from Boss Tweed.   With Boss Tweed taking a bit of a brew, is it a good substitute?  In today’s video, I not only review Full Earth, but I also do a full *scientific side by side between the two – and I make a desert island declaration.  Watch for more!

Oddside – Shadynasty’s IPA – A New Dank Juice?

Odd Side Ales didn’t open a club with their gambling money, but they did create a beer and named it after their star attraction – Shadynasty. Shadynasty’s is a 7% IPA, that beer advocate calls a double IPA for some reason. I’m not sure who’s right, but that doesn’t stop me from drinking it and bringing the truth to you!

Founders – Double Trouble Imperial IPA 2018

In it’s first appearance since 2014, Double Trouble is a limited release Imperial IPA from Founders Brewing Company in Grand Rapids, Michigan and I’ve got it here for you today!

Founders describes it as “An imperial IPA that was brewed to turn your world upside down. Hops will get you coming and going. Pungent aromatics up front pair with a malt-balanced backbone and a smooth, bitter finish.”

Well I’ll just have to see about that for myself, won’t I?

Short’s Brewing – Sticky Boots Triple Dry Hopped Double IPA!

Today I’m having a gander at Short’s Brewing’s Sticky Boots, which is a triple dry hopped double IPA. Say that five times fast and that means you should have another. Short’s says this about it:
“Sticky Boots is a triple dry-hopped Double IPA. Copper in color with a substantial white head carrying dank aromas of floral and citrus hops. Leading with strong tropical flavors and a juicy mouthfeel, this beer transitions into highlighting the floral hops. Well balanced and easy to drink, Sticky Boots finishes with huge juicy tropical flavors.”

This review is a bit old, recorded in March but due to some extenuating circumstances with my studio (the dungeon) I’ve released this one today. I’ve wanted to put this out for a while but there’s been so many great beers out lately, I couldn’t find room!

Enjoy and let me know what you think!

Trillium Brewing Company – Permutation Thirty-Three Double IPA Review

Going back to mid-April, I took a trip out to Boston and was able to check out Trillium Brewing Company’s downtown location.

Bell’s Brewery – Double Two Hearted Ale – Double IPA

Bell’s Two Hearted is one the highest reviewed beers in the country, and admittedly one of my favorites – so when I heard that Bell’s was releasing their Double Two Hearted, an 11% double IPA version of their already hugely successful IPA, it was a no brainer that I had to bring it to the channel for you. I’ve said over and over that Two Hearted is one of my all time favorite beers – definitely in my top 5, so how does the double IPA version of it rank? Can it take the top spot? Watch and find out!

Stone Brewing and Nutista – Tangerine Express IPA & Nutbutter Review

I’m back with another Stone and Nutista collaboration, and this time they brought Tangerine Express IPA, and a nutbutter to match! Tangerine Express made it’s debut last year in bottles, and now it’s available in cans, which should help perserve even more freshness for this year round release. Nutista’s Tangerine Express nutbutter is made with peanuts, blanched almonds, brewers malts, sea salts and overflowing with tangerine and pineapple.

Big Lake Brewing – Lake Haze Juicy New England IPA

From the west side of Michigan, today I’m taking a look at Big Lake Brewing’s Lake Haze, which they describe as a Juicy New England Style IPA. With the weather finally breaking (now if only the rain would go away), We really need a tasty, but lighter NE IPA, and at 5.5%, Lake Haze sounds like it could fit the bill – but is it all sizzle and no steak? Stay Tuned to find out!
